Webinar: Breathing Pattern Dysfunction and Pelvic Pain

Leon Chaitow

This presentation describes and explains the presenting features and symptoms (pain, fatigue, and anxiety) of unbalanced respiration (breathing pattern disorder), as well as rehabilitation strategies. Research shows this widespread habit (mainly affecting females) negatively affects disturbed autonomic balance, musculoskeletal and circulatory function, pain thresholds, and motor control and core stability, as well as balance. Safe rehabilitation methods are described and discussed. Every massage therapist should be able to recognize and advise on this widespread problem, which requires a combination of breathing re-education and manual treatment to achieve rehabilitation.
